    Everything I needed to know about tire sizes was on Sheldon Brown. Mostly that was limited to 26" sizes, since 700c is straightforward.

    Like I said then. Just buy a decent tire from one of the big makers. I use Conti, others use Michelin or Vittoria or Kenda or Panaracer. They all make good tires. You won't be able to tell the...

    So let me get this straight. You are worried about getting the fastest tire available so you can ride it 10 miles per day? Do you really think this will make it faster? Do you really think that...

    I went in their store before I did the ride. Let me tell you though, Makawao is barely a warm up going up the mountain. You're not ready if you feel that you only had some left in the tank. You need...

    Weight and age. I've put on way too many pounds, and I'm now 59. For so long I'd resisted putting anything like a granny gear on my bike. But as long as I'm above ground I want to keep riding, and...

    It was the steep switchback section where I had trouble. The one block of Olinda I knew was short so I could just stand and get over it. But those switchbacks were just killer. I had passed the...

    After years of riding a 50/36 front with an 11/25 rear, I switched to a 34 up front and a 26 rear. Just a little lower but it made a huge difference. Instead of having to mash up some hills I could...

    I'd say go with the Novarra. As everyone else has pointed out, they have a very liberal return policy. It will be a much better bike for little more than you were ready to spend.

    My bike with the chrome lugs and fork crown doesn't have any chrome anymore. It all rusted off after 30 or so years.

    When I look at my Cyo premium I always think it is big, but then I see the beam and that too is big. It just doesn't look like a bike light when you ride, even with all the super bright lights you...

    It is probably a bad solder joint. If you open it up just check continuity with a multimeter. Use a magnifying glass and look for anything that may be cracked. The circuit can't be all that...

    Freehub question

    This is really a silly question but I'll ask anyway. I have an old LX M550 7sp hub on my commuter that I'm going to replace with a 10sp LX T670 hub so I can use the smallest cog. The wheel itself...

    Definitely go with an LED version, and get a 2013/2014 model. They've come a long way in the last few years.

    When I saw Second Avenue on the pop-up, I thought this thread was about NYC. But at least here in NYC, they clean the lane on First and Second Ave. at least once a week, maybe twice. I come up...

    Last night I did the thing I've thought about doing but never did. About half way home on my ride, a little (or a lot?) drunk, it started raining lightly. The day before, after my light test with...

    I've had my cables in my Chorus setup for almost 10 years now. I see no reason to replace them. Anybody that is changing cables that often is wasting their money.

    I spotted someone else today too, the first time in a really long time.

    For that matter, tonight's ride will be the first time for me in any kind of traffic.

    The weather looks to be good enough for tomorrow. 7:30 at 23rd and 1st Ave, Manhattan. Everyone is invited, even from Idaho.

    Maybe a visit to a local watering hole is in order after the ride.

    My experience is that front wheels are harder to find, at least used ones. Before the rear wheel takes a hit, the front wheel has already borne the brunt of the impact. Your case is a perfect...

    This is perhaps the easiest bearing adjustment of them all. Unfortunately, it is so easy and straightforward that nobody seems to get it the first time. There just has to be more to it than that. ...

    My SJ1000 will save files in 3 minute chunks if that's what you want, and then will delete the oldest file when space runs out.

    This Wednesday is looking good so far. Temps in the low 50s. Far from warm and springlike, but not cold enough to stop me from riding. No rain either.

    I should qualify my statement about broken spokes. I did break 3 spokes once, but I crashed head-on into a car that made a u-turn right into my path. I also broke the carbon fork steerer tube, the...
